Parkway Students Research Civil Rights Legends

Fifth graders took part in a project that helped sharpen their research and communication skills.

Parkway Elementary School fifth graders recently learned how to research  topics and communicate information while studying civil rights leaders.

Through their investigation of figures such as Hank Aaron, Ruby Bridges and Harriet Tubman, the class learned how the leaders societal contributions are significant today, according to the East Meadow School District website

The students were instructed to research their legendary figures using primary and secondary resources. Each student created  questions based on their research and then paraphrased their obtained information and developed a research report with an illustrated cover.

Fifth grade teacher Larry D’Angelo said the project was beneficial to students.

“This assignment is part of Expeditionary Learning,” Mr. D’Angelo explained. “The students focused on the writing of a complete report on a topic of interest, internalized important research and presentation skills, and became motivated and engaged listeners.”
